Shawn,

According to your profile you have around $9k US invested in gear... And you can only afford to spend 3% of that on a support system? Seriously?

It looks like the tripod and head you've selected would be at least adequate for most of your lenses although I have doubts about the 200 Micro or the 80-400. It's heavy but if you're willing to tote it around then that really doesn't matter. How easy it is to use and how long it lasts is something to be determined, whether you can live with the tradeoffs long term is a personal decision.

I'd say go for it, it's an improvement over what you have. Save your quarters and stay far away from friends with Gitzos and high-end heads...

Best,
Bill
